This is a single-center, observational, prospective study on quality of life and disease status of patients who underwent radical prostatectomy. Data related to clinical conditions (oncological, psychological, sexual and quality of life) of these patients are collected in a database.
Prostate cancers (PCA) are a heterogeneous group which include indolent tumors that has no clinical significance to very aggressive cancer that could result in morbidities and mortality. Thus, an accurate risk stratification at the time of PCA diagnosis is crucial. The histological examination of PCA biopsy specimens could not accurately predict the final tumor aggressiveness shown on radical prostatectomy specimens because of heterogeneous distributions of the most malignant tumor cells. Prostate multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) has been generally accepted to be the best imaging modality for detecting and localizing prostate cancers themselves. Furthermore, the rapid development of radiomics provide comprehensive quantitative information of all tumor data which could be used for risk stratification and prognosis prediction. Thus, this study plans to enroll 200 eligible patients who undergo prostate mpMRI first, followed by radical prostatectomy for prostate cancers. We use radiomics extracted from prostate mpMRI for risk stratification patients of histological aggressiveness as well as to predict very early recurrence of PCA patients within 6 months after radical prostatectomy.
This study aims to establish a holistic framework for continuous cancer survival surveillance in Russian regions with high-quality population-based cancer registry data. The data from the population-based cancer registries of the Northwestern regions of Russia will be used to assess net and cause-specific survival trends.
This is a pilot evaluation of a patient-centered intervention that enables providers to support men on active surveillance to maximize adherence. Conducted in urology practices, this pilot will measure key patient-reported, provider-reported, and implementation outcomes. Successful completion of this work will inform a subsequent multi-center effectiveness-implementation hybrid design trial and ultimately will improve low-risk cancer management by effectively engaging Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) in care delivery.
This observational study aims to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of radiotherapy for subjects with localized T1-T2 prostate cancer in China who were injected with SpaceOAR Hydrogel, via collecting clinical data related to radiotherapy.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of four of the nowadays most established primary treatments for patients with clinically localized prostate cancer (active surveillance, robot-assisted radical prostatectomy, intensity-modulated radiotherapy, and real-time brachytherapy) at short-, mid- and long-term follow-up. The primary aim is assessing the impact of treatments' side effects on patient's quality of life. As secondary objectives, biochemical disease-free survival, overall survival, and prostate cancer-specific survival will also be assessed.
This clinical trial is to provide a minimally invasive treatment option in which the targeted prostate cancer tissue is killed by cryoablation at extremely low temperatures only in the specific area of cancer "that should be treated for saving of life"; while, leaving a portion of the normal prostate tissue that is not cancerous. It is a treatment, named by "focal therapy" for "clinically localized prostate cancer". As this new treatment is aiming to treat only specific prostatic area of cancer, it is different from the invasive conventional treatment to remove the entire prostate gland. The goal is to achieve both to control of known cancer by treating only the cancerous area and to maintain of QOL (Quality-of-life) by leaving of the other normal prostate tissue and its surrounding organs intact resulting in prevention of urinary-leakage and sexual-dysfunction as the complications.
The diagnostic pathway for suspected prostate cancer relies greatly on radiological imaging. Establishment of magnetic resonance fingerprinting (MRF) has the potential to significantly improve patient experience and outcomes. MRF is a novel and innovative approach to a long-standing challenge of recording and reconstructing MR image The aim is to conduct a clinical pilot study in which patients will be scanned using the newly refined MRF sequence in addition to the conventional scanning protocols.
The aim of the study is to determine if triptorelin formulated for use every 6 months (given twice during the study) is effective and safe for when given by injection under the skin for the treatment of adult males with cancer in the prostate.
The aim of this study is to evaluate and optimize protocols for the isolation and analysis of analytes in urine (cell-free nucleic acids, extracellular vesicles and proteins). The following factors will be evaluated (1) volumetric collection with Colli-Pee®, a collection device developed by Novosanis for standardized collection of urine, and (2) stabilization methods. This is a prospective study in which urine samples will be collected from healthy volunteers, urine samples and a blood sample from pregnant women and cancer patients with solid tumors with emphasis on breast- and prostate cancer. The participants will be asked to provide a urine sample collected with the Colli-Pee® device and fill out an online questionnaire to collect usability data. Thereafter, the urine sample will be aliquoted to be used in different pilot studies for the protocol optimization. For the pilot study where the effect of volume will be assessed, participants will be requested to collect multiple samples with different Colli-Pee® variants and fill out questionnaires accordingly.
